Chums Productions & All You Can Eat Films is committed to minimising the impact the filmmaking industry has on the environment. We are aware that we are small but we think that every little counts and so we will do our best to reduce our carbon footprint by implementing simple changes to make a significant difference. We understand that becoming zero carbon is a big challenge for a small independent production, but we are ready to take up the challenge, champion the cause and make it possible by cutting our carbon emissions, planting trees to offset any carbon production, promoting, informing and by engaging our crew, cast and audience to embrace a more sustainable lifestyle.
While our small-scale productions allow the team to manage the impact of our operations making our goals easily achivable, we believe we can make a bigger impact by engaging with our stakeholders influencing and educating them to further improve environmental sustainability in the sector.
We will focus on encouraging the cast and crew to undertake sustainability training, to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle and follows best practices. We will also select suppliers who conduct sustainable business operations to meet our environmental needs. Finally, we will offset the unavoidable elements of the carbon footprint.
REDUCE TRAVEL DISTANCE AND ENCOURAGE THE USE OF PUBLIC TRANSPORT, GREEN VEHICLES AND OTHER GREEN-RIDE ALTERNATIVES.
PROCURE SUSTAINABLE GOODS AND SERVICES AND OPERATE A ZERO-TO-LANDFILL POLICY ACROSS ALL OPERATIONS.
PROCURE GREEN ENERGY FROM A COMPANY EXCLUSIVELY SELLING 100% RENEWABLE POWER AND IMPROVE USE OF RESOURCES.
We will look to work with cast and crew and other productions that share our same thoughts about sustainability and green living.
We will lead our team by example and provide guidance, find solutions and mitigate our environmental impact where possible during production, reminding crew, cast and supplier our commitment to reduce our carbon footprint.
We will follow Albert guidence in completing an Action Plan and use the Production Tool to calculate the carbon footprint of each production from the development stage to completion, monitor and assess progresses during production and thereafter.
We will aim to promote environmental topics and sustainable lifestyle through the production of shorts and features featuring these topics or we will commit in encouraging positive change and awareness on these topics in a variety of other ways. monitor and assess progresses during production and thereafter.
We will always seek new ways to minimise our impact on the environment and learn how to improve our work from best practice. We will work together with other likeminded productions and people to share ideas and make each other better.
